, the president of the united states, you can have whatever you like as long as the boss approves it. as long as the boss approves it. let me just conclude by saying, the people that came up here today had a prescription for america. and they told us and i had one in my pocket and i didn't have chance to share it with them, but here's my prescription, 10 prescriptions, indeed, for a healthy america, no government-run health care plan, no cuts to seniors' care, no new deficit spending, the president promised that. no new taxes. that's in the republican bill. no rationing of care. the seniors don't want to get thrown under the bus. but they will under 3962. no individual or employer mandate. that's unconstitutional to force people, to force them, we want taupe courage them, we want to lower the prices as the republican bill does, so they can get health insurance but in a voluntary way and we don't want to have taxpayer-funded coverage for illegal immigrants and we -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. mr. gingrey: mr. speaker, thank you for your patience. i think we've p

? >> i think there is a list, a long list, of countries over a period of time that the united states and the president will host as visitors and guest here, but i think what came about with this one, this is 810-year relationship -- 810-year relationship. over 10 years, there has really been an important partnership in reaching out on the part of president clinton, on the part of president bush, to really solidified this important strategic relationship. there is so much -- this is the largest democracy in the world, india is. we are the second-largest democracy. there is an important relationship that needs to be nurtured and continue. the national security advisers of the president -- have said that he should which it will recommend others that he should host. and ultimately, that will be his decision. >> we heard earlier that this is the first lady's show. when does the first lady's office began preparing for a state dinner? >> this dinner, likely, or this visit started right at the time that secretary clinton hand- deliver the invitation from president obama to prime minister sin
. and sparked an incredible takeover of the united states house of representatives in 1994. and what this is tonight, this victory here led by bob mcdonnell is a warning shot. and it says to the moderate democrats in the house they ought to think twice about continuing to pursue the policies being proposed by this white house and nancy pelosi. enough with the extreme agenda. we either return back to the common sense conservative principles of free market, of individual responsibility of entrepreneurialism, that's whatted that i this country great. we ought to say no to the government takeover of health care that is being proposed on the floor of the house this week. sean: all right. congressman, governor, thank you both for joining us tonight. joining us now with reaction and analysis of tonight's event is the architect, karl rove. good to see you. how are you? >> fantastic. good to sigh. i said before this race if bob mcconnell wins it would be tilling. i thought if he won by auto big margin it would be even more telling. i said if he had coat tails which he had in the united states
the people's lives in the united states of america. the tea baggers are protesters -- or tea party yers, rather, are protesting about government seizing a huge chunk of the american economy and imposing near dictatorial controls. and by the way, i don't think the death panel thing is quite as far-fetched as a lot of commentators are saying. when the exchanges are put in, when the insurance exchanges are put in in states, that is going to allow a certain kind of almost death panel-like chrome by bureaucrats. so i don't think president clinton is on the right track here, although i do admire him a lot in terms of his taste in women in arkansas, but i do not think that he's barking up the right tree here. neil: now, now, now, now. adam, one of the issues i want to raise with you, again, regardless of what he said about tea partiers and all, is his thinking and is the democratic leadership's thinking, look, we don't want to run into the bus that we ran into surg the during when we would go home for a break when we had all these town hall protesters, we don't want that. so the better part of

in the united states shows that we are still in a very tough environment. that seems like an understatement when you factor in these under employed that we were talking about just a minute ago. >> that's absolutely correct. we're experiencing a jobless recovery. g.d.p. is starting to increase again but not rapidly enough nor at the pace we would expect coming out of a recession to stop the job losses and then turn around the unemployment rate. it looks as though we're going to be above 10% throughout 2010, and it's going to be a very long time before we have a normal private sector job market. most of the stimulus money is creating federal bureaucracy jobs. rick: we saw some productivity numbers this past week. that were up. productivity is up. but this is not necessarily good news for folks out there who are looking for jobs. i was reading -- it doesn't really provide a lot of incentive for employers to hire new people when their productivity is on the way up with the fewer number of workers. >> we have a paradox in the united states. we have the most productive economy in the world and it's be

from michigan points out, we do have another document here and that is the united states constitution and i think the most dramatic contrast is when you take speaker pelosi's approach to health care, 20 pounds by the way and i have carried this around to know it is about 20 pounds of paper and you take the u.s. constitution and contrast it to this massive document of 1,990 pages and this is the founding document of our country. we don't need a government takeover of health care, we need to fix the problems that are broke. we don't need to break the things that are great in this country. we need to continue this debate and encourage the american people to stay engaged because the american people want the problems fixed, but they don't want the government that couldn't even run a cash for clunkers program properly to be taking over their health care and interfere in their relationship with their doctor. . mr. broun: frankly if you look at that document, the small one you just dropped down, the constitution of the united states, you won't find any constitutional authority in that documen
we want to help small businesses, we want to help citizens in the united states be able to afford health care and we are taking on the insurance industry. , mr. speaker, what is so difficult about this to understand? they have been ruling the roost in the country for how long, and we are stepping in after an election in 2006 with the american people were fed up, an election in 2008 where president obama won. and basically a huge election, and he talked as a centerpiece of his campaign about health care reform. and here we are. the thing about it-dirnl' sure our districts aren't that much different. manufacturing, a lot of immigrants came over the last 100, 150 years to our states, and a lot of middle class people, and our people don't get on a bullhorn and scream about their problems that they have in their family. they have a lot of pride. but they just want to muscle through it, but they want an element of fairness in the system. so they'll, as i said, i don't know if you were here or not, they'll grab me at the restaurant and thank me for my vote or i hope it passes, pulls thro
're doing poorly, governor corzine, when the president of the united states has to give some of his best poem to your campaign and appear three times in the midst of some very critical decisions. steve: but mr. christie touched on something important. the key to new jersey hangs in how many votes chris daggett, the third party candidate can siphon off. latest shows he's polling at about 12% which could doom chris christie's chances. gretchen: i thought maybe daggett would drop out of the race and throw his support in one or either of the directions which would probably mean a win for chris christie. let's take a look at the latest polls. this quinnipiac university poll has chris christie two percentage points ahead of jon corzine. believe four polls were released within the last couple of hours. all are within the manchin of error -- margin of error. some have corzine up by one or two points. some have christie up by one or two points. there are more registered democrats in the state of new jersey than republicans. so the one word that's important today is turnout. who will turn out? bri
